What's new in openSUSE 12.3

Filed under
SUSE

With the new version, 12.3, the openSUSE developers are presenting an update of their popular Linux distribution that offers a redesigned, elegant desktop, updated software and various technological improvements.

Among the new features in openSUSE 12.3 is added UEFI support: the distribution will boot on UEFI computers – both from DVDs and from USB sticks. This worked on our test computer even if Secure Boot was enabled in the firmware setup; however, Secure Boot support must be explicitly enabled in the bootloader settings during installation. The openSUSE developers are still classing the feature as experimental.
